They could have a warehouse somewhere or something. Some parts do get special ordered if they are out of the norm. Like the head shield for under the hood. Locally they have to order that from out of the city.

They probably can and did get the part next day, but couldn't get you worked on until the date they gave you. So they just tell you oh we can't get the part until... And this way you bring the car when they have the time. They probably have one guy who will do this job. That's my guess. But I'd rather they did that then take my car and not touch it for a week. I've had people do that before.

Although I live in a small town the Ford dealer had the revised seal on hand and I assume it fits more than just the Mustang. We are lucky enough to live 500 from Fords West Coast Distribution Center and I've gotten overnight service on stuff like my Boss 302 splitter/deflector and GT500 spoiler and GT500 twin tip exhaust kit.
Sometimes I fail to understand why people are so down on Ford dealers. I guess just like people.........there are good ones and bad ones...........IMHO

So, I would encourage you to have the service dept. guarantee that a rear end specialist does the work to save you hassle down the road.
_________________________________________________
I never intend to hurt feelings, but so what if i do, or i did here in this case-
I would also ask that a dumb *** not touch my differential. Seriously.
As of now, I trust ONE human being to get close to mine. If he fell ill, or off a cliff, I would keep toppin it off once a week for ever.
But, seriously, should be a quick fix, done by lunch.
GREAT time to replace bearings, change gear ratio, INSTALL AMSOIL SEVERE GEAR Diff Fluid & FRPP Friction Modifier!!!!!
Please Update & Learn Me Sumthin

^ Yeah, based on my experiences, I'd trust the average low-level dealer tech about as far as I can throw him. If you're having any real work done (gears, etc.), you definitely want to use an independent specialist with experience. I really think dealers probably rarely service the differentials of RWD cars and just don't have enough know-how to get it done right the first time (or the second time, in my case). I learned my lesson and had an independent guy rebuild mine--10 months later, no problems.

Yes, the dealer had to replace my pinion seal at 7000 miles and used the revised version.....the old one was plastic and the revised is metal.
